As luck would have it, my model TCD746320 just died this week. I have a spare hard drive, but need the image. Would you be willing to share with me as well?
Thank you! I've had partial success.
Doing a full restore to a hard drive, then putting the drive in the Tivo, it goes to the Welcome screen, then the "Just a few minutes more" screen for awhile, then the screen goes dark and the TV reports "Not a supported mode". Only the green light on the Tivo is lit, no other activity noted.
Is there anything special that needs to be done to the drive before or after the restore?
I've tried using 2 drives so far, a Seagate 1 Tb, and a Hitachi 1.5 Tb with the same results. Both drives were previously used as Windows 7 OS drives, and the only thing I did to them was delete the partitions before running the software.
Appreciative of any help!
That sounds like maybe it worked, just TiVo is coming up in a resolution that your display (TV/Monitor) doesn't support.
Try changing it with the ^ (up arrow) button?
Is there audio? TiVo sounds? Try tuning to a channel (even though you can't see video)?
No audio at all, button presses do nothing except make the yellow light blink (no key press audio), no Tivo musical intro, no change when trying to change channels, up arrow doesn't change anything.
Don't use HDMI when making any changes.
Use composite or component video and make sure everything else is working right, and only then take a chance on HDMI.
Worked fine with the A/V jacks. Currently going through the clear and delete process.
I'm a little lost on where/who you ask for an image. Looks like my drive failed and I have a WD Red 3TB drive handy (backup for a NAS that hasn't needed it yet) so I thought that I'd try putting in a new drive first and I'd rather not pay a huge premium for one already formatted.
You ask right here, starting with the model of the TiVo in question.
PM sent. Once you restore the image you can use MFSTools 3.2 to expand it.
I have TCD746320 that has hard drive going bad. I bought a replacement drive, but now I need a image file for it. Would someone please share one?
The drive in my TCD758250 went belly up. Looking for the image. Thanks in advance.
It seems my hard drive in my Premiere 746320 went bad as well. Could I get a an image for mine as well? Thanks in advance.
I am looking for a disk cloning utility that works under OSX to help me make a disk-to-disk clone of my Roamio drive.
I am currently in a situation where I have to use a Thunderbolt I/O device to get a couple of eSATA ports going (no Windows machine available), and the TB I/O device only works under OSX.
I plug my eSATA dual dock into it, and it works fine, but now I need software to do the clone, and have not been able to find any. There's plenty of utilities that will clone the OSX partition from the boot drive, but I haven't been able to find anything that will clone an external dock with a TiVo drive in it.
When I had access to an extra Windows machine, I used Rawcopy to do the clone, and that worked just great. I need the equivalent for OSX. Anyone?
Replying to my own post...
So jmbach convinced me to try using my cloning dual dock instead of going through a full OS, and it's almost 3/4 done, so we'll soon see if the resulting clone boots and works.
I would be real pleased if it did, since it takes 17 hours to do a 3TB copy using RawCopy on my old machine, and it looks like it's going to take just 6 hours on the cloning dock.
Those things make me slightly nervous for some reason, even if I'm very careful about which disk is the source and which one is the destination. My paranoia makes me think it might do something harmful to the source drive, although why that would be so I can't say.
For those interested, it's the 'Mediasonic HUR2-SU3 2 3.5" USB 3.0 UASP ProBox dualbay docking station', which they claim can handle drive sizes to 8 TB and is available from Newegg.
The amount of failures for the 746320 seems to be ever increasing. ggieseke could you send me a link for the 746320?
I tried a recovery of the original but all it does is make the whir whir whir ca-clunk sound. Many many thanks for your awesome work!
